    There’s nothing I like better than the feel of a newspaper in my hands. Yet I disagree with the idea that an elegy needs to be written for the decision not to include stock tables.

    I say this because of two reasons, one based on the need and one based on something else:

    1. I discover, the longer that I’m a business journalist, that everyone I meet — young and very old — with an interest in the market, follows it on the Internet. Newspaper Web sites provide that data, and even if they don’t, finance.yahoo.com and other Web sites offer plenty of it for free.

    2. It is an environmentally sound decision in that fewer trees will be cut down.

    I am not an expert, but I’ll even try to argue against myself just to play the devil’s advocate. I imagine that such a decreased use of newsprint could hurt newspapers because it would shrink the market for their suppliers. I don’t know how to solve that problem, but the presentation of information is mutable, and this seems like a natural course of events.

    On the other hand, I am an amateur on this topic, so I would appreciate it if periodically you could remind readers of your blog why stox should be in the papers.

    Thanks very much, and I enjoy the blog! There is no other service like yours on the Internet of which I am aware.
